My Librarian Aimee

Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.   

—C.S. Lewis


When I’m not chasing my two small children or doing the dishes, you can find me taking advantage of every quiet moment to read. I’ve always loved books where people overcome trials and end up bettering themselves. Even as a child, if a book made me feel something or cry, it was an instant favorite. Mick Harte was Here, anyone? I am a huge advocate for body positivity, self-love, and doing what makes you happy. As an adult, I love books that promote a healthy body image and self-confidence. My favorite types of books include: graphic novels, fairy tale adaptations, YA, and nonfiction. I love true stories about people who have conquered the odds and have made their lives better. I also love teen contemporary realistic fiction because, even as an adult, you can learn from them. You learn how and why you should treat someone with respect and why it’s important to follow your dreams and fall in love. If you’re looking for your next cozy mystery, I suggest you ask one of the other fabulous librarians, but if you want shocking true stories and coming-of-age tales, I’m your girl.
